Water Sports on a Windy Day

I stopped by the beach area at CJ Brown this windy afternoon looking for migratory birds.
Instead, I found some different birds....and airborn they were!
The beach waters were being used by some kite-boarders to fly high and fast across the water. I was amazed and in awe of their skills! Here are a few images, and the full gallery is here (if you guys see these, you can open the gallery and download any you want).

Great Blue Heron with More Than He Could Handle!

I was watching this Great Blue Heron fish today and was surprised to see him dive, then run up to the top of the ridge. Later, while checking my pics, I saw that he actually grabbed a rock and a fish. He apparently realized that if he dropped the rock, he's lose the fish too, so he went to higher ground to keep his catch. Clever boy!!!

It's that spidery time of year....and the meadow was draped in lacy, dewy webs this morning. 
I picked up a new Fuji camera body....the X-T3. Improvements include faster tracking subject lock-on. This shot was taken with the new camera....I'm impressed with the colors and light handling, but will have to wait to check out the tracking.
